DAO that sells gold with Ethereum based coins
Project DescriptionDigix, a gold-tracking asset on the Ethereum blockchain, which structured the company as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization raised its funding cap of $5,500,000 in under 12 hours. Digix is building a platform for trading gold-backed tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. The company is based in Singapore, and will store physical gold for each token issued on Ethereum. There are fees charged for storage at 0.39% per annum, similar to Gold ETFs. However, the big advantage of Digix tokens over gold ETFs will be its global nature and ability to divide the shares in order to facilitate micro-transactions.465,134.95 ETH ($5,500,000) was raised from 675 addresses which puts the average investment size at $8,148. The total was reached in 12 hours.

Fintech Festival Week Special: ConsenSys Singapore Roadshow
We will have a special segment head of business development, Andrew Keys, who will be sharing on a new ConsenSys arm.
The sharing economy without intermediaries. Built using the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS.
The sweepstakes industry is a global business hampered by the costs and complexities of operation. Most sweepstakes require intermediaries, auditors, prize administrators, and legal counsel to meet regulations. Today’s consumers are also more well-versed in privacy and security than ever before, making it more difficult for contest creators to establish trust. Pryze is the faster, better, and cheaper solution.
This is a demonstration of a use-case of the blockchain and is not meant to be a display of gambling related activity solicitation of customers and users should exercise their own diligence when interacting with the platform.
4) Veridium Labs
The Veridium Network is based on the Ethereum Protocol and is a Digital Asset Issuance Network for Natural Capital Assets and EcoSmart-Commodities™ (e.g. carbon neutral or environmentally mitigated commodities). The platform will include multiple types of environmental asset tokens (including REDD+ Credits), that may be tokenized and on-boarded to the blockchain through the Veridium Network. The first to be issued, TGRs, are backed by Triple Gold REDD+ (forest conservation carbon credits) as the underlying Natural Capital asset.
Balanc3 is a smart contract powered Triple-Entry Accounting system. Balanc3 uses the non-repudiability and comprehensive audibility of the blockchain to guarantee the integrity of accounting records. Balanc3 uses EtherSign and IPFS – a decentralized data storage platform – and the Ethereum blockchain to construct, store, manage, and digitally sign documents. Documents may be in the form of self-enforcing smart contracts like employment contracts or invoices, or traditional text agreements. Invoicing through smart contracts automatically processes and records payments. The blockchain ensures that past accounting records have not been altered and are not alterable, once committed, even by the owners of the accounting system.
